Support: Get help with Tweaks for Twitter

Tweaks for Twitter is a macOS web browser extension that improves the user interface of twitter.com in many ways. Tweaks works in Safari for Mac, Google Chrome for Mac, and any other Chromium-based web browser for the Mac, such as Brave, Microsoft Edge, and Vivaldi.

The developer of Tweaks for Twitter is Jeff Johnson AKA @lapcatsoftware, famous for solving the Mac OCSP appocalypse. Jeff's other software includes StopTheMadness, the beloved web browser extension that stops web sites from making your browser harder to use, and Link Unshortener, a Mac app that expands shortened web links. Jeff was a longtime engineer at Rogue Amoeba Software and also worked on the open source RSS reader Vienna.

If your Twitter account has no switch to select "Latest Tweets" at the top of your timeline, Tweaks forces the missing switch to appear!

Tweaks also unsticks the title at the top of the Twitter window, making it scrollable.

Tweaks replaces shortened https://t.co/ URLs in tweet links with the real unshortened URLs, allowing you to bypass Twitter's click tracker. (This feature does not work for Twitter cards or user profiles.)
